Will I fit in a T3?

Post by Brian B » Tue Jul 16, 2019 2:38 pm

Hi. Just logging in for the first time to say hello and ask " will I fit in a type 3 Triking?" I started off with a BRA, and fitted in that. I built a Blackjack Zero, and fitted in that too. Building a Lykamobile (1901 locomobile replica steam car) at the moment and I should fit on that no bother at all.
I have a dim recollection of sitting in a type 3, at a Stoneleigh kit car show, some years ago. As I recall, it was a tight fit. My steam car build should be completed by this time next year and the new project just has to be a Triking. So the dilemma is, can I live with a type 3, and maybe could buy a used example, or is it gonna' have to be a type 4?
If there is anyone with a type 3 within an hours drive of Doncaster? Could I come round and have a sit in it, and talk Trikings? Thanks in anticipation. Keep it between the hedges!
Brian

Founders Day at Stanford Hall Lutterworth just of M1 / M6 / A14 junction LE17 6DH is your best bet. If you want to come a little further down the A1 to Biggleswade you can sit in a T2 and view a T3 in build Brian.

Thanks for the warm welcome on Sunday and for letting me sit in your T3. The answer to the question posed in this thread is " yes he does fit, but only just." You really do need that removeable steering wheel if you are anything less than slim and fit! All things considered, it's gonna have to be a T4.
So the next plan is to arrange to see the T4 demonstrator and have a good think about it.
keep it shiny side up.

Hello Brian,
My type 4 is almost finished and is "on the road" if you want a look and see if you fit. I'm a bit nearer to Donny (about 50 miles) at Matlock. Drop me an email if you want - john at jtdesign dot net.
